More Society Islands & Tahiti - 7-Nights

Set your heart aglow and immerse your senses with jaw-dropping views painted in dreamlike colors, for here is an adventure you will never forget. Scenic, sacred, and sublime, the captivating splendor of the Society Islands has long been a muse for artists and authors-Matisse was greatly influenced by "the light and enchantments of the sky," and Michener declared Bora Bora the most beautiful island in the world. The same poetic beauty that inspired Melville, Stevenson, and Gauguin himself is revealed with artfully authentic insight on this enriching journey.

Highlights

  • Fall in love with the "Pearl of the Pacific" as Bora Bora is known; an overnight here invites an escape to our private beach one day, and time to venture inland on an off-road adventure the next.
  • Explore the sacred history of Polynesia's Maohi people on a visit to Raiatea; this lush island is home to the UNESCO-listed Mara Taputauatea archaeological site.
  • Delve into Moorea's hypnotic beauty-said to be the inspiration for Michener's mythical Bali Hai-and explore Papeete's waterfront boulevard on an overnight at the end of your journey.

    Detailed Itinerary

    Day 1 - Tahiti, Society Islands

    The largest of French Polynesia's 118 islands, Tahiti and it's capital city of Papeete are the perfect place to begin (and/or end) your South Pacific sojourn. The Gauguin waits patiently in the harbor, a vibrant and bustling market across the street and in the evenings roulottes (food trucks) line the nearby square offering tasty local fare.

    Day 2 - Huahine, Society Islands

    Don't be fooled by the vibe of this laid-back, secluded island. Many treasures are hidden among the lush rainforest and dramatic terrain. With a bit of exploration, you'll uncover some of the best-preserved archeological sites in French Polynesia. Underwater treasures await as well, with a snorkel excursion in the lagoon.

    Day 3 - Raiatea, Society Islands

    Blanketed in a lush landscape dotted with waterfalls, fertile valleys, and the cloud-capped Mt. Temehani, Raiatea is Polynesia's most sacred island; it was from here that the earliest migrations set forth to settle in Hawaii, New Zealand, and beyond. The island boasts a rich Maohi history-it is home to the UNESCO-listed Marae Taputapuatea archaeological site-verdant mountains ideal for hiking, and a stunning lagoon perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and soaking up the heavenly tranquility.

    Day 4 - Taha'a, Society Islands (Motu Mahana)

    As the day unfolds in front of you, where will you go? Exciting shore excursions await, but so does Motu Mahana, Paul Gauguin Cruises' own private islet. Choose from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, or simply lounging on the beach with a cold drink from our floating bar. Les Gauguines are also on hand to share musical entertainment and Polynesian crafts.

    Day 5 - Bora Bora, Society Islands

    Explore lush peaks, wander white-sand beaches, and marvel at the iconic views of Mount Otemanu. Take the plunge with a SCUBA excursion to see the island's colorful coral reefs, enjoy a sunset jetboat ride, or spend a lazy afternoon on our private beach*. Like a priceless Paul Gauguin painting come to life, storied Bora Bora is colorful and unforgettable. The landscape alone will have you searching for adequate adjectives, especially once you see the lagoon-'turquoise' just doesn't do it justice.
